Redmond Area Park & Recreation District Position 3

Special districts in Oregon are formed to govern specific resources. Examples are people’s utility districts, library districts, sewer districts, irrigation districts, ports and cemetery districts. Some districts get revenue only from taxes. Others, such as water districts, get revenue from ratepayers. Others may combine the two sources. Each district is governed by a board of directors which is responsible for the operation of the district and its financial accountability.

Covid 19 was a challenging time for the district. It still is. As we return to normal, we must examine past and present programs and activities to ensure their viability. As a Director of Policy, I will coordinate with the other Board Members in gathering community feedback via social media, a user survey and perhaps a formal Community Needs Assessment. Based on that, my priorities for funding will reflect the needs identified through these means.
My plan to involve residents in the decision making process is to propose funding for a Community Needs Assessment. Greater use of social media assets and exploring new channels to increase citizen awareness of RAPRD facilities and programs.
The most important aspect of working for the District for me is Community involvement it the Policy making process. I became a candidate for this position so that I could represent a segment of the community that I feel has been under-represented in the decision making process.
Covid 19 fue un momento desafiante para el distrito. Sigue siendo. Al volver a la normalidad, debemos examinar los programas y actividades pasados ​​y presentes para asegurar su viabilidad. Como Director de Políticas, coordinaré con los otros miembros de la Junta para recopilar comentarios de la comunidad a través de las redes sociales, una encuesta a los usuarios y tal vez una Evaluación formal de las necesidades de la comunidad. En base a eso, mis prioridades de financiamiento reflejarán las necesidades identificadas a través de estos medios.
Mi plan para involucrar a los residentes en el proceso de toma de decisiones es proponer fondos para una Evaluación de las necesidades de la comunidad. Mayor uso de los activos de las redes sociales y exploración de nuevos canales para aumentar la conciencia ciudadana sobre las instalaciones y programas de RAPRD.
Para mí, el aspecto más importante de trabajar para el Distrito es la participación de la comunidad en el proceso de formulación de políticas. Me convertí en candidata para este puesto para poder representar a un segmento de la comunidad que creo que ha estado subrepresentado en el proceso de toma de decisiones.
